MOORHEAD – Inmates at the Clay County Jail have access to a service not afforded to many prisoners across the state of Minnesota, a county official says.


When a computer was recently installed in the jail, inmates could go online to a legal database and conduct research.

Clay County is likely the only county in the state to offer such a service to its inmates, said Assistant Clay County Attorney Jenny Samarzja.
